neuroscience, genomics, and technology

How does the genome build the brain? Can the genome be used as a molecular tool to study brain development directly in humans? And can newly developed genomics technologies be deployed more rapidly and reliably in clinical medicine?

Our mission is to develop foundational new technologies to advance neuroscience and human genetics and to help solve diagnostic mysteries in neurology and psychiatry. We also aim to accelerate the implementation of genomics in clinical medicine, especially for children with rare undiagnosed diseases.

We are part of the new Center for Human Genetics & Genomics at New York University School of Medicine, and are affiliated with the Institute for Systems Genetics, the Neuroscience Institute, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital.
